Today, Vidyamandir has many institutions scattered all over Palanpur, but in the beginning, the name was only limited to our Gujarati medium secondary school, established in 1955-56. Gradually, it created such a profound influence on the education scenario in the vicinity that people began recognizing all the institutes of the Trust by the same name. This movement reached its culmination when the Trust renamed itself as Vidyamandir Trust, Palanpur.
Later, this school required some significant changes in its infrastructure, which became possible with the assistance of Shri Pravinbhai S. Kothari, Shri Piyushbhai S. Kothari & Shri Atulbhai S. Kothari in 2012. As the donors wished to dedicate their donation to their mother, the school building came to be known as Smt. Shantaben Shantilal Kothari Bhavan.
Shri Vividhlaxi Vidyamandir has consistently excelled in academic, sports, and cultural activities ever since it came into existence. Our enthusiastic and erudite educators strengthen our foundation.
Higher Secondary Section
Shri Keshavlal Maneklal Choksi was born in Palanpur. He lost his father when he was quite young, so he courageously came forward to support his family and developed his business single-handedly. Inspired by his great entrepreneurial skills, his children pioneered their own ventures in India and abroad. When the '10+2+3 System' of education was implemented in Gujarat in 1976, Shri Keshavlal Maneklal Choksi's family provided financial assistance to the Trust to add a higher secondary section to the school in the same year.
Today, Shri Keshavlal Maneklal Choksi Higher Secondary School is one of the top Gujarati-medium schools in the state. Between 1998-99, our school was given a grant of Rs.40,000/-for its countless accomplishments by the Gujarat Government. We offer all streams of education with the help of some of the finest faculties in the field. With the introduction of inclusive education, we have fulfilled all the requirements of special education as well.
